"I really like how the fair site has grown since I had last seen it and I love all the little touches and signs throughout the grounds. I hope you continue to make it a special place. Love the peacocks because they remind me of when I worked at a zoo. Love the other animals. LOVE the trees." - Kresenz M (2012)

"What a fun day! My daughter and I brought four kids (11, 8, 5 and almost 2). They totally had a wonderful time and so did the two adults. Loved ALL the pirates and costumes and activities. Can't wait for next year!" - Charlene (2013)

"It was a very nice event. My daughter loved it. Can't wait for next year we attended both days this year. ... The street characters/performers really add to the event." - Cris (2013)

"The Blue Mermaid was wonderful. I'd never seen her before, and her singing voice was lovely and she was great with kids. Hope to see her again. Enjoyed the way the event was clearly about pirates and not just a renfaire with a pirate theme." - Lisa (2013)

"Some of my family's favorites were the mermaid, the snake, the sword fighting stage show & the kids' sword fighting lessons!" - Liz (2013)
